The restaurant is on the first floor and was reasonably full with a couple of Korean families there for their meals. The staff was good and reasonably efficient. The food was good particularly the premium beef and bulgogi. The staff did all the cooking on the hot plate in front of us. The small side dishes came in unlimited quantities.... More

Good meats, staff cooks it for you if you want. They do a great job. Lots of free sides in unlimited quantities of you order for main dishes. Clean place, helpful staff, very good service. Not cheap though, probably because of high quality ingredients.

It's not cheap if you want to eat good korean food in Malaysia. I used to live in Korea for a good 18 months and I was craving for some recently. I love the bibimbap and the kimchijjigae..which were nice. I ordered some SamGupSal and the waiter was helping us to grill them. I really don't like the fact that... More

Daorae has many branches in Malaysia, and their food is consistently good with many side dishes (Bachan) offered. I especially love the Kimchi Jiggae. They have the typical Korean bbq fare as well as the usual soups, noodles and rice dishes. Also a great place for lunch because they have set meals as well.

The food at the Daorae is excellent, the service is very very efficient, quick and the waitress are so kind. The atmosfere is always very good. I hardly reccommend for groups up to 6-8 persons. Easy to share the BBQ and all the Deli are brought on the table.

I like the BBQ pork belly and pancake! But not the potato pork rib soup. The main course are mostly in big portion.

I seldom eat Korean food and so happened that my appetite for Korean food suddenly appeared. When we saw this Daorae Korean Restaurant, good or no good, must go in. The decoration of this restaurant was cozy and comfy .. especially at upper floor. For the menu, we really had no idea as we were really unfamiliar. We ordered 2... More

Marinated beef and lamb that we had were nicely done. Good variety of ban-chan (side dishes) and quick refill upon request. Service from waiters was courteous and efficient. Korean floor managers were experienced and highly diplomatic when it came to asking lingering customers to make way for the long queue. Good choice for Korean BBQ, but only if one does... More
